    For me there's no reason to keep flaming Barca (here). We all know they cheat. We all know the refs let them. We all know UEFA wont do anything about it.

    Wenger knew it and commented on it. Mourinho knew it and made allegations. And soon we'll hear Ferguson say it.

    I dont want either of them to win. Hate UEFA too. The best result for me would be a 22 man punch up on the pitch resulting in the abondoning of the game.

    A shame, Barca could've scored six tonight...certainly they were a class apart and the 3-1 result is of no consequence really. The best club in the world meant business tonight...

    Interesting post.

    Why do you think Barcelona had such an easy time of it?

    Did United do anything right?

    In retrospect do you think United could of played differently in some way, changed tactics or personel to make the game more competitive?

    Or do you think Barcelona with this team are always going to walk all over united?

    Or any other club in the world? Clearly the best by a country mile.

    Yes I agree Barcelona are the best club in the world but they are beatable on a given day.

    I think the Liverpool team of 5 or 6 years ago had a team and the tactics to beat Barcelona of today. Pack the midfield with real quality and patiently wait for a break. Boring to watch but effective.

    United today kept Messi fairly contained, its not like there were 10 times i thought here we go.

    The problem United had was in midfield, totally outclassed, out passed and no connection with defence or strikers and a great big hole infront of Vidic and Ferdinand the entire game.

    It was embarassing, United played the wrong team and tactics.
    At half time they should of moved Valencia to RB, off with Fabio and Hernandez, on Scholes and Nani.

    Almost play 4-5-1-0, United could have frustrated Barcelona, got into the game by gaining confidence from passing the ball a little more and atleast had a chance.

    I'm not saying they would of won, just made more of a game of it if they had changed formation IMO.
